Are cannabis-related events allowed in the City of Ithaca?

Due to the strong likelihood of violations of NYS law as administered by the Office of Cannabis Management (OCM), the City has established a policy of declining event permits at which cannabis will provided to members of the public as part of the event, until such time as OCM begins legally permitting cannabis vendors in NYS. OCM has announced that violators will “risk the opportunity to get a license in the legal market as well as substantial fines and possible criminal penalties.”
